Poem Hunter
(29 September 1970 / South Africa)


I woke up one night because
I heard you call...
I answered the night
but the night was still

I walked by the river and
heard you whisper to me...
I cried to the water
but the echo was empty

I stood by your grave and
felt your breath on my face...
I wept on the stone
but you were still gone

I remembered a time when
we had laughed together...
and this memory is what I'll
hold onto in my heart forever
